THE MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE UNIVERSE
IS NOW IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND!

Owners of Sony's PlayStation Portable (PSP) jumped for joy when we posted news about the first TV-on-UMD release, Spider-Man - The New Animated Series (which streets today!). Since then there has been very little solid word of other TV-on-UMD releases. MGM (now owned by Sony) has discussed a mid-September release of Stargate: Atlantis, but hasn't officially announced it yet. Ditto for Paramount's talk of a late August release of Viva La Bam on UMD. Paramount (and sister companies Comedy Central, MTV and Nick) have also mulled UMD releases of such shows as Chappelle's Show, South Park, Ren & Stimpy, SpongeBob Squarepants, and possibly WildBoyz. Also, TheDigitalBits.com has reported that Image Entertainment is talking about a possible release of The Twilight Zone for the UMD format on your PSP system. None of these, mind you, have been officially set up with retailers by the studios in question.

Now BCI has jumped ahead of the pack and begun soliciting UMD releases of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe - The Best Top 5 Episodes: Season 1 and He-Man and the Masters of the Universe - The Best Top 5 Episodes: Season 2. Each one is due on August 23rd, and lists for $19.98 (Amazon's pre-order prices are $13.99 for each one).

This is essentially the same release as the 2-DVD set we've told you about, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe - Best 10 Episode Collector's Edition (due July 12th), but with the discs converted to UMD format and sold separately. It's unknown at this time if the DVD extras will also be included on the PSP version. Here is the episode breakdown for each UMD:
  • He-Man and the Masters of the Universe - The Best Top 5 Episodes: Season 1
    • "Evilseed"
    • "Quest for He-Man"
    • "Prince Adam No More"
    • "Diamond Ray of Disappearance"
    • "Teela's Quest"


  • He-Man and the Masters of the Universe - The Best Top 5 Episodes: Season 2
    • "Into the Abyss"
    • "Teela's Triumph"
    • "To Save Skeletor"
    • "The Problem with Power"
    • "Origin of the Sorceress"

Amazon currently has their listing for these UMDs marked in error as being DVDs, causing confusion among many readers who wrote in to us about it. Our thanks to everyone who wrote, and to our friends at BCI who cleared things up. Stay tuned and we'll have more He-Man home video information for you just as soon as we can!
